Guild Wars 2: Shadow Of The Mad King Content Pack Announced

ArenaNet has announced the first major content pack for MMO Guild Wars 2, Shadow of the Mad King.

Based around Halloween, Shadow of the Mad King is currently scheduled for a release on October 22 nd .

“Halloween has a long history in Tyria, and in times past was always marked by the spirit of Mad King Thorn cavorting among the people unleashing his own brand of insanity,” ArenaNet said. “However, it’s been over 250 years since he was last seen, and for most people he is merely a figure of folklore. Despite this, rumours persist among the populace that something wicked this way comes.”

For a week only, Tyria will feature Halloween decorations, accompanied by minigames and dynamic events.

ArenaNet also teased that it’s also “the time when barriers between realms are weakest. Be prepared for an epic adventure in four acts starting 22nd October and running until 31st October.”

Meanwhile, Black Lion Trading Company’s Evon Gnashblade will be stocking Halloween costumes, as well as new transforms that allow you to play Costume Brawl with other players.

Finally, the Shadow of the Mad King patch will also contain paid structured PVP tournaments, in addition to new bosses, events, jumping puzzles, mini-dungeons and achievements.
